The strong support around 0.01 BTC since November came out to be a very positive sign for XMR’s pump, thus despite the sharp increase in Bitcoin. On the other hand, if the Bitcoin value continues towards $1000, we definitely expect Monero’s value back at 0.01 levels.
The next support level after, sits around 0.007 area. Last pump in Monero can be explained by the fact that Alphabay (Darknet) added XMR coin alongside with Bitcoin due to its anonymity features. Another reason was the release of a new wallet designated for wide range of operating systems such as Windows, Linux and more.
